"Applying what we read in the Bible to our daily lives is the highest purpose of Bible study. We don’t study it so that we can win theological arguments or impress people with our knowledge. We read it so that God can use it to transform our lives. Therefore, we should read the Bible with humility and an open heart, being ready to be challenged and changed by God’s Word. We should read it with an open mind, not assuming we already know what it means. The more you read the Bible, the more new and fresh truths you will discover in its pages. It is inexhaustible." - from The Tony Evans Bible Commentary
Tony Evans is one of the most influential church leaders of our time and has been studying and preaching the gospel for over 50 years. He also holds the honor of writing and publishing the first full-Bible commentary and study Bible by an African American.
